STRAUB of Glogowatz, Austro-Hungary [now Vladimirescu, Romania]
The purpose of this page is to facilitate genealogical research on the ethnic German STRAUBs who emigrated to the United States from the predominantly ethnic German town of Glogowatz, co. Arad, Crisana, Austro-Hungary [now Vladimirescu, Romania].  That they are related is proven for some and a near certainty for the others.  A descendant of Anton STRAUB II of Glogowatz is participating in the STRAUB Y-chromosome DNA Surname Project, so these STRAUBs can establish their relatedness with DNA testing.  Their Y-chromosome haplogroup is tentatively deduced to be E1b1b1, the third most common haplogroup in Europe.

  Village Names:  Glogowatz is the German spelling; Glogovãt is the historical Romanian spelling; Vladimirescu is the current, official Romanian name; Othalom/Öthalom is the Hungarian name.  Many phonetic spelling variations of these names are found in the records and on the web (e.g., Glogovatz and Glogovat, which are Anglicized spellings), hence the inclusion of a long list of name variations as keywords on the family group sheets.  As I'm researching German STRAUB's, I've standardized on the German spelling, Glogowatz (pronounced Glogovatz).

  Geography:  RO is the country code for Romania; HU is the country code for Hungary.  Jud. = Judetul = "County" [Kreis in German]; regions, such as Crisana, are the next larger civil division.  Romania is about the size of Oregon.  Nearest big city to Glogowatz is Arad (distance 4 km). 

  History of the region is complex. In a nutshell:  after 1699, Arad belonged to Hungary; 1867, formation of Austro-Hungary [not an "empire," but a "dual monarchy"]; Hungary became an independent republic in 1918; in 1919, Romania annexed the regions of Banat, Crisana, Maramures, and Transylvania.

  Some Hungarian Naming Conventions:  given names follow the surname (e.g., Paul Straub would be Straub Pál); a married woman has her husband's name with -ne/-né suffixed to his given name (e.g., Mrs. Paul Straub would be Straub Pálné.).  Ethnic Germans in Austro-Hungary/Romania may use the Hungarian, German, or Latin form of their given name (e.g., John may be János, Johann, or Joannes).
